In honor of his birthday…

Congratulations, Seth Landman

You are my favorite person of the year.
Welcome spring pussy
willows. Let’s map the impermeable–
a ghost of a woman floating
above your bed. Valve or cartilage
You raise your hand and look much like a masthead
to me. The simplicity of tuna salad
between two slices of good
peasant bread. Sternum or breastplate
I am for serious about this
this time. Ribplexus or solarcage
Say boys will be basketballs.
Say they won’t. Whatever you do
don’t let it hit you in the heartbone.
